What a troll!

Mark Gubin is an artist and photographer in Milwaukee and decades ago he realized that his studio was along the flight path to the local airport. He had the brilliant idea to paint on the roof of his studio in giant letters "Welcome To Cleveland."

So why did he do this? Because he simply wants to mess with people.

For years the sign has caused passengers on planes to freak out about going to the wrong place. There apparently was a Denver to Cleveland flight that stopped over in Milwaukee and the sign caused all sorts of confusion from passengers who thought the plane must have skipped the layover.

No one from the airport or airlines ever complained about his humorous bit of misdirection, although he did hear that some of his Bay View neighbors were embarrassed when the sign first went up. 

Mark said: "It was all tongue-in-cheek, just for fun. Living in the world is not a dress rehearsal. You better have fun with it,"
